Thor: The Dark World (2013) Poster

Anthony Hopkins: Odin



  • [last lines] 

    Odin : One son who wanted the throne too much, and other who will not take it. Is this my legacy?

    Thor : Loki died with honour. I shall try to live the same. Is that not legacy enough?

    [offers the hammer] 

    Odin : It belongs to you, if you are worthy of it.

    Thor : I shall try to be.

    Odin : I can not give you my blessing, nor can I wish you good fortune.

    Thor : I know.

    [turns to leave] 

    Odin : If I were proud of the man my son has become, even that I could not say, it would speak only from my heart. Go, my son.

    Thor : Thank you, Father.


    Loki : [appears from Odin's guise]  No... thank you.

  • Odin : She does not belong here in Asgard any more than a goat belongs at a banquet table!

    Jane Foster : Did he just...?


    Jane Foster : Who do you think you are?

    Odin : I am Odin. King of Asgard. Protector of the Nine Realms.

    Jane Foster : [chastened]  Oh. Well I'm...

    Odin : I know very well who you are, Jane Foster.

    Jane Foster : [to Thor]  You told your dad about me?

  • Loki : [mockingly comes to attention before Odin and laughs]  I really don't see what all the fuss is about.

    Odin : Do you not truly feel the gravity of your crimes? Wherever you go there is war, ruin and death!

    Loki : I went down to Midgard to rule the people of Earth as a benevolent God, just like you.

    Odin : We are not gods! We're born, we live, we die, just as humans do.

    Loki : Give or take five thousand years.

  • Odin : Despite all I have survived, my Queen still worries over me.

    Frigga : It's only because I still worry over you that you have survived,

  • Einherjar Lieutenant : [reporting to Odin]  There's no sign of Thor or the Aether. However, we found a body...

    [Odin turns and looks at the guard] 

    Odin : Loki...

  • Loki : And what of Thor? You'll make that witless oaf king while I rot in chains?

    Odin : Thor has to strive to undo the damage you have done. He will bring order to the Nine Realms and then, yes... he will be king.

  • Odin : All this because Loki desires a throne.

    Loki : It is my birthright!

    Odin : Your birthright was to die as a child! Cast out on a frozen rock. If I had not taken you in, you would not be here now to hate me.

    Loki : If I am for the axe, then, for mercy's sake, just... swing it!

  • [first lines] 

    Odin : [narrating]  Long before the birth of light, there was darkness... and from that darkness came the Dark Elves. Millennia ago, the most ruthless of their kind, Malekith, sought to transform our universe back into one of eternal night. Such evil was possible through the power of the Aether, an ancient force of infinite destruction. The noble armies of Asgard, led by my father King Bor, waged a mighty war against these creatures. As the Nine Worlds converged above him, Malekith could at last unleash the Aether... but Asgard ripped the weapon from his grasp; without it, the Dark Elves fell. With the battle all but lost, Malekith sacrificed his own people in a desperate attempt to lay waste to Asgard's army. Malekith was vanquished and the Aether was no more. Or so we were led to believe.

  • Thor : Let me take Jane away from here. Malekith is sure to follow, capture her and draw out the Aether from her. But in doing so, he will be vulnerable, and then I can defeat him!

    Odin : Malekith is sure to return, we have what we wants. And when he does, we will defeat him.

    Thor : We can not fight an enemy we can not locate! Malekith could be right over us now, and we'd never know! How many Asgardian lives must we sacrifice?

    Odin : AS MANY AS IS NEEDED! Till the last Asgardian falls, till the last drop of blood is shed!

    Thor : What makes you so different from Malekith, then?

    Odin : [mirthless laugh]  The difference, my son, is that I will WIN.

  • Odin : Her world has its healers. They are called doctors, let them deal with it!
